OOF pattern depends on focal lenght?
In reply to Alex Notpro, Feb 18, 2014

Maybe the explanation is that a 25mm can't have the same OOF pattern than a 50mm.

For example, a FF 50mm adapted on a m4/3 camera will always be a 50mm, with the same bokeh pattern. The only thing that change is the "crop factor", but the lens remains the same with all its characteristics.

Try another test : your Olympus 60mm at f/2.8 vs your Nikon 70-300 at 120mm f/5.6.

I guess they'll have different OOF patterns too.
